1969 R Code 428 CJ Mustang Coupe, Auto




Quote:
This stunning Silver Jade 1969 Mustang was born on March 25th, 1969, in the Dearborn Ford Assembly Plant and is truly a one-of-a-kind car. It recently underwent a complete rotisserie restoration that was completed this year. According to the Marti Report, this is the only ’69 Mustang Coupe built with this set of unique options: Silver Jade code 4 paint, 428-4V Ram-Air Code R V8, C-6 Cruise-O-Matic Transmission, and Black Knitted Vinyl Bench Seat. Other factory-installed options include air conditioning, AM radio, rear seat speaker, competition suspension, and F70x14 White Letter Tires. This Pony was originally sold new on April 7th, 1969, to a gentleman in Huntington Beach, CA, and it stayed in the family until the mid-’90s. The car also comes with a plethora of documentation, which includes: a deluxe Marti Report, original buyer’s order, and original Ford owner warranty card.

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 - One For The Shows

Tim Orick’s 1970 Boss 302 was one of 14 early-production cars built for the Ford dealer intro shows

Quote:
The 14 Boss 302s were nearly identical, all well-equipped with rear spoiler, rear window slats, tachometer, power steering, tilt steering column, and the Convenience Group, although Marti notes that one car had a console instead of tilt steering. Nine were equipped with the 3.91:1 rear axle.

These early-production Boss 302s were also linked by several exterior variances from later and more typical Boss 302s. Most noticeable was the stripe placement on the rear quarter panels—instead of running below the side marker lights, the stripes angled upward and into the marker lights. They were also equipped with the standard chrome taillight housings and stainless rear window molding instead of blackout, along with chrome trim on the taillight panel that was actually from the Mach 1 but without the honeycomb insert. Based on magazine photos of 100056, the engines were equipped with the early production chrome valve covers, similar to 1969, as opposed to the later and more common '70 aluminum covers.

1967 Mercury Cyclone R-Code 427 CI, 1 of 19 Produced



Quote:
At the same time Ford was using its W- and R-code 427 Fairlanes to blast the competition in Stock and Super Stock drag racing, Lincoln-Mercury was grabbing Top Stock Eliminator titles and setting class records of their own with their low-production Cyclones. The R-code 427 CI V-8 was a masterpiece of design. Based on the FE big block, it used cross-bolted main bearing journal caps, forged rotating assembly with 11:1 forged aluminum pistons, a flat-tappet solid lifter cam, special new “medium riser” heads, so named as they were a compromise – an exceptionally good one, as it happened – between the low-profile early 427 heads and the high-port heads used in the Thunderbolt racers. Using the same light-alloy valves as the “high riser” heads, the R-code engine was topped with a well-designed aluminum intake manifold mounting dual inline Holley 4-barrel carburetors. Race-prepared 427 Cyclones easily reached down into 11-second quarter mile times; on the street, their factory rating of 425 HP made them a force to be reckoned with. 50 427 Medium Riser-equipped Comets were built, including 202, Capri and Caliente models and 19 R-code Cyclone hardtop coupes, one of which is offered here in beautiful restored condition. Incorporating a heavy duty Toploader 4-speed and 9-inch rear end, this 1967 R-code 427 Cyclone 2-door hardtop presents in the classic factory configuration of White with a Red interior fitted with bucket seats. Radio and heater are factory deletes, and the car uses the optional fiberglass hood with dual intake scoops and rides on period-correct chromed steel wheels with Blackwall tires. Documentation includes a Marti Report.

1969 Dodge Hemi Coronet R/T, 4-Speed, Super Track Pak



HIGHLIGHTS

- 1 of 19 Super Track Pak cars
- Original Hemi engine
- Correct replacement Hemi 4-speed transmission
- Dana 60 rear end
- 4.10 gears
- Maybe the only Y2 Yellow Hemi Coronet built
- 31,674 actual miles
- Tic-Toc-Tach

- Chrysler Classic Events World Finals 2007, car scored 300 points out of 334 points
- Fender tag, radiator core support and trunk bib, numbers all matching motor

http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_de...=&startRow=161



They make it sound like having the A34 Super Track Pak is rare right? 1 of 19 right? Well . . . it really isn't as rare as they make it out to be. In 1969 Dodge built 97 Hemi Coronet R/T Hardtops (for the USA) of which 58 had the 4 Speed. Looking at the above sales info, if you ordered a Hemi/4 SPD you were required to order A33 with A34 optional. So of the 58, 19 were A34 - that's 33% or 1/3. IMO - not that rare.

As you can see above, the difference between A33 and A34 is the 3.54 vs 4.10 gear ratio and the inclusion of Power Disc Brakes ($93.10)


1969 CORONET R/T PRODUCTION FIGURES

6,755 total production for the 2 Door Hardtop
6,448 shipped to US dealers
4,810 equipped with the 440 Magnum & HD automatic
1,541 equipped with the 440 Magnum & 4-speed
58 equipped with the 426 Hemi & 4-speed
39 equipped with the 426 Hemi & HD automatic
4 equipped with the 426 Hemi and shipped to Canada

483 total production for the 2 Door Convertible
426 shipped to US dealers
318 equipped with the 440 Magnum & HD automatic
99 equipped with the 440 Magnum & 4-speed
6 equipped with the 426 Hemi & HD automatic
4 equipped with the 426 Hemi & 4-speed
4 equipped with the 426 Hemi and shipped to Canada

Here are some production numbers for the A32 and A34 options for the 1969 Coronet R/T

Hardtop (WS23)
440 auto 4.10 (A32) 219
440 manual 4.10 (A34) 245

1968 Chevrolet Biscayne L72 - All Original with 720 Miles



HIGHLIGHTS

- The only factory Black L72 Biscayne known to exist
- Original and unrestored with 720 miles
- Factory Tuxedo Black paint
- Turbo-Jet 427/425 HP ID suffix engine
- 4-speed manual transmission
- 3.55 Positraction rear end
- Fully documented with the Protect-O-Plate, dealer invoice, delivery checklist and copy of original title
- Sold new at East Point Chevrolet in Forest Park, Georgia
- Purchased from the Petersen Museum
- Instrument package, bench seat
- Painted steel wheels, dog dish hubcaps
- The ultimate factory sleeper

Quote:
Sold new by East Point Chevrolet in East Point, Georgia, this 1968 Chevrolet Biscayne is reputed to have been purchased by a Forest Park, Georgia, resident involved in the bootlegging business. As the story goes, the car’s owner eventually landed in jail, his worldly possessions confiscated but for this car, which escaped the revenuers’ clutches after it was hidden underground. Whatever the veracity of that tale, this well-documented and exceptionally well-preserved Biscayne remains virtually as fresh as the day it was built. It has been part of a succession of high-quality collections, including those of Pat McGroder, Kenn Funk, to the Petersen Automotive Museum and then onto Dennis Higginbotham. Described by Muscle Car Enthusiast Magazine as “the ultimate muscle car sleeper,” it is one of fewer than 100 produced with the L72 Turbo Jet 427/425 HP big block engine, in this case backed by a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and 3.55 Positraction rear end. This car is believed to be the only 1968 Factory Tuxedo Black L72 Biscayne known to exist.

1969 Dodge Coronet R/T vs 1969 Plymouth GTX (Hardtop)






BASE PRICE HT:

R/T = $3,425
GTX = $3,416

Both cars inc the 440/375hp Magnum engine with a choice of AT or MT and Bucket Seats.

PRODUCTION NUMBERS:

R/T = 6,755
GTX = 14,902

As you can see from the above, the GTX was a MUCH better seller than the R/T. More than twice the number of cars sold.

On the discussion of the A32 and A34, here are the production numbers for the GTX:

69 GTX HTs shipped for US sale:

440 4 speed with 4.10 (A34) 632
440 auto with 4.10 (A32) 534

Now compare those to the R/T:

440 4 speed 4.10 (A34) 245
440 auto 4.10 (A32) 219

1967 Ford Galaxie XL R-Code 427/425 HP, 4-Speed



Quote:
Ford was moving toward big-car luxury in 1967, but performance was still very much a part of the Galaxie’s identity. This glowing 1967 Galaxie XL demonstrates the mixture at its potent best in an attractive combination of code-correct Candy Apple Red with a Red interior, the latter part of the $515.86 "7-Litre Sport Package" that included power front disc brakes and the top-of-the-line XL bucket seat interior with center console and wood-rimmed Sport steering wheel. The most important part of the package, of course, is the exceptionally rare 427/425 HP with dual Holley 4-barrels, chromed steel valve covers and finned aluminum oval air cleaner, in this case matched to a 4-speed manual transmission and 3.50 rear end. Documentation includes a Marti report.

Did you know . . .

Beginning in 1967, you could get a front bench seat in a GTO. They were only available in two colors; Black and Parchment, then later (1970) Black and Sandalwood.

1967 GTO with TR236






1968 GTO with TR235






1969 GTO with TR267






1970 GTO Judge Convertible with TR267
